He has always been one of my favorite Golfers but after this weekend I think he is number 1 to me.

I gave him the nickname "Rage Kage" last year to make fun of how calm and collected his personality is.  I was watching Sunday with my Fiance and kept saying "Let's go Rage Kage!!"  My fiance looked at me and said "he really doesn't seem like the type to have a temper"

He did seem like he was having fun on Sunday

The way K.J. interacts with the crowd, and especially kids, really impresses me.  He seems like a genuinely great human being.  This just further solidifies my opinion of him.

He always seems to be a pretty consistenty good players. Not talked about enough IMO in the world of Rickie's and Rory's. Plus he always seems to be up there on the leaderboard on sundays.

I don't know when i started liking him but i did a few years ago.  It was a combination of his game and interaction with the crowd that won me over.

And its weird, when people ask who i like on tour i hardly ever say KJ.  Its usually phil, rickie, Bubba, etc.  But i always find myself rooting for KJ on sundays.  I have to start telling people i like him too.

My buddy's dad met him while volunteering at a PGA event practice round. Said he was the nicest guy out there.

Another cool thing about Rage Kage was the first thing out of his mouth in the post round interview was affirming his belief in Jesus Christ.

While I don't consider myself to be a Christian it is pretty special to see a man not afraid to proclaim his Faith first thing, after one of the most important professional events so far in his career.

Rage Kage is a special man indeed...

I'm sure that "Choi's Bois" membership is increasing.  Really enjoy watching him play, and how well he handles his business.

Nuck, I agree with you. In today's society, many people think it is not PC to discuss anything dealing with religion in public for fear of offending someone. I was glad KJ was not afraid to state his belief in Jesus!

KJ has a quality no one can ever take from him, and something I wish more would aspire to have...  He is a classy person.  It only takes a little more to be first class and he does it quietly and well.

    • Let's see... how many things can you do on a golf course?  Uh, fling golf, foot golf, regular golf, sled in the winter, ice skate on the ponds, cross-country ski, have keggers, have parties, have sex... the list goes on.  Mary Queen of Scots is turning over in her grave.
    • Tiger’s driving could be more erratic than Jack’s.    Driving: Jack (I think they were equal in distance relative to the equipment they were  playing, but Jack stayed out of the shit) Approach (75-250 yards): Wash. Jack takes the longer end (mainly because of some amazing 1 and 2 iron shots). Tiger takes the shorter end. Short Game: Tiger not close. Putting: Wash. Both of them in pressure situations.    Recovery: Tiger Mental: That’s a wash. Performance under pressure: Both How much better than everyone else was Tiger in his prime vs Jack on his prime? Tiger set the bar so high when he was in his prime that most guys behind him weren’t even in the same time zone let alone, the same tour. Jack was pretty damn good but he wasn’t as dominant as Tiger and that’s where Tiger is so much greater than Jack and that’s what makes him the GOAT.  
    • It seems it would be difficult to get the ball to stop on the green. Bump and run can be judged. But let’s say a 150-170yd…it’d be hard to hurl the ball far enough to get there but with a high enough trajectory to stay on the green. Seems like every shot outside 100yds would have to be a bump and run.
    • For those who have tried golf a few times and find it too frustrating(like my wife), I can see where this might be fun for some. Consider me open minded. But that is coming from a snow boarder and someone who also enjoys disc golf as well.  🙂
    • They probably have to pay the same rates so it won’t hurt the course in that aspect.
